Sports day at Glentress Forester School 1948

Photographs and images courtesy of Joan Park who has submitted some of her father, Hamish Park’s photographs from his days at Glentress Forester Training School in 1946-48.

The image shows events and organisation of the Glentress School sports day thought to be in summer 1948 when the 1946 and 1947 intake students numbering about 60 would be participating (or at least some of them).

Joan and her mother Jean comment:


‘Running race .... Hamish Park coming in 2nd .... 1st can't confirm’

Can anyone identify the winner? Note the lay out of Nissan and wooden huts.
